The Unanswered Ives
The Unanswered Ives is the first film about Charles Ives and a profound exploration of this extraordinary, multi-faceted personality. The 60-minute documentary will shed light on Ives’ life and work in all its facets and inconsistencies.
The film explores the musical world according to Ives, with performances in churches, concert halls, out in the open or football stadiums. Extensive, staged music recordings form the matrix of the film. Because the artist and business man was strongly influenced by his native New England, impressions of landscapes, places and events weave through the documentary. Insurance brokers, musicologists, musicians and eyewitnesses give their own answers to the question which has hardly yet been answered today: who was Charles Ives?
